St Elisabeth byzantine icon mother of St John the baptist contemporary painting Saint Isabel religious art female saints



St. Elisabeth mother of the holy Prophet, Forerunner and Baptist of the Lord, John. I like this long format of for the original icons- I believe they would make a perfect adiitinion to an icon corner and a perfect very personal gift

The icon was painted with the eggtempera trechnique on a 9mm thin, specially prepared plywood panel that measures  30 cm in height . The name of the Saint -- Aghia Elisavet -- is written on her left and right in greek, with brown eggtempera with byzantine characters.
Shellac and resin varnish are added on top to seal the colours and produce a miniature icon that will last

Additionally the icon comes tenderly protected in its individual bag, together with its instructions how to care for it, a little sachet of herbs from our garden in Crete -and our custom icon favors - Ready to be used as a gift
